Over the last few months, new students have been anxiously awaiting the start of dental school, and at last, Friday concluded DS1 summer orientation. Students got a chance to learn about their new classmates via daily ice breakers and fun interactive activities, while also getting to know the staff and support offered at the School of Dental Medicine. Highlights from the week include Apple support day, where IT staff helped students set up their new MacBook computers, a scavenger hunt which allowed students to work together to find important places around campus, and a barbecue in which upperclassmen had the opportunity to speak about different student organizations on campus. DS1s also had to opportunity to attend a Colorado Rockies game and mingle with their classmates, professors, and SODM staff.
With a week of orientation under their belts, the Class of 2018 has officially begun their journey through the next four years.
On behalf of Colorado ASDA, good luck and have fun!
